Installation instructions and tips for care
The motorcycle panels and covers are made of polyester resin and reinforced with fiberglass, carbon-kevlar or carbon. The top layer consists of a UV-stable polyester gelcoat in RAL color or a transparent version. This coating can be cared for with normal car cosmetics, small scratches can be polished with fine car polish polishing pastes.
Instructions for storage, installation and use of FiMa Racingparts motorcycle fairings and covers
The cladding parts shall be subjected to the incoming goods inspection, in which it shall be checked whether they are the parts ordered, not damaged and correct. The parts are only for racing without street approval.
Before machining, the panels must be stored for 24 hours in a room at a temperature of 18ºC to 27ºC
Check on the motorcycle if all brackets for the motorcycle fairing are present and not twisted or bent.
Put the fairing parts on the motorcycle and without drilling and cutting try if the fairing fits to the motorcycle (for drilled and cut parts no complaint will be accepted!) For some types of motorcycles helpers are to be made. The closed bottom parts for catching the oil need not be compatible with the exhaust manifold or exhaust system that they have installed!
Tip: If the manifold is too close to the lower part, you should slightly warm the GFRP at this point (max about 35-45 ° C) and express something. Remedy against too much heat at the bottom part can create a heat protection mat, this is glued into the base. In addition, a heat protection tape can be wrapped around the manifold.
The mounting points on the frame are the same as those of the original row, but are not pre-drilled to allow the adjustment of the individual trim pieces, e.g. is simplified at bent mounts.
Eventual painting of the cladding shall only be carried out after the complete drilling and the trial installation of the cladding on the motorcycle. Then disassemble the fairings, degrease and sand with fine sanding paper (for example 400), putty out small patches with polyester putty, sand again, degrease and coat with conventional car paints.
Unpainted cladding made of fiberglass must be provided with a suitable primer before any painting, preclude small pores with a filler kit or spray filler. This also applies to parts made of Avio-Fiber and Carbon.
NO DRYING AT TEMPERATURES OVER 30ºC
Coverings should be stored at a temperature of 15ºC to 27ºC so that they can not deform

Assembly of the cladding:
When assembling most panels you start at the bottom, that means first the base is adjusted and mounted on two middle breakpoints. After fixing the first part, gradually assemble the other parts and align them. (Fixing with screws on the motorcycle from bottom to top) Afterwards the disc is installed in the upper part. The last holes are the holders for the mirrors marked and drilled. When serial cut first come the two side panels and then the top of it.
To cause a change in shape (for example, when tensions have developed), carefully heat the parts and keep them in the desired position until the material cools. (This will make the change permanent, max 30 - 35 º C) Also running the engine heats up the panel and may cause a change.
Assembly of the front fender:
Pre-drill the drill points for the fork with a 2mm drill "centered", then drill with an approx. 6.5 - 7 mm drill. Align the fender with the fork and pre-assemble it. Now mark the drill points on the brackets for the brake hoses, remove the fenders again and then drill the holes at the marked points as described above. You can finally assemble the mudguard afterwards.
Mounting the rear wheel cover:
For the installation of a rear wheel cover we can not call a general procedure. With a rear wheel cover with chain guard, it is important to first align the chain guard and mark, drill and secure this side. Then align with the center of the opening and mark, drill and secure the attachment points on the other side.
Installation of engine covers, frame and swingarm protection:
Clutch, Lima and oil pump lids are glued on with heat-resistant silicone (at least 110-125ºC) Apply the silicone compound only occasionally to facilitate subsequent disassembly. Frame protectors and swingarm protectors can also be attached either with double-sided Velcro or with normal silicone compound. On different models cable ties are sufficient, which under the
